The first EuroMillions draw was held on Friday 13th of February 2004, when this european lottery started. At that time it used to take place only once a week.
Friday night's draws are the favorites of the lottery players, because on these days extraordinary situations such as the SuperDraw happen. Indeed, more than 80% of the winners of the EuroMillions jackpot have bought their tickets for a Friday draw. And Friday nights are famous also for the wins of the maximum prize of €190 million, that happened three times since lottery launch.
As always, the draw time is 20:00 CET.
EuroMillions lottery was launched in 2004, however, Tuesday draws were only introduced in May 2011, when various changes were applied to the game: a 13th prize tier appeared and the “lucky stars” matrix was modified from 1/9 to 1/11.
Although the chances of winning are the same on any draw day, EuroMillions players usually purchase less tickets on Tuesdays. Precisely for this reason, in several Tuesday night's draws the EuroMillions jackpot has been given away to a single winning ticket. Moreover, though the records are held by Friday draws, some of the biggest EuroMillions prizes were won during Tuesday draws, amounting €185 million and €162 million.
SuperDraw is a notable event of EuroMillions lottery that is held twice or three times per year in celebration of special lottery events since 2007. The uniqueness of this draw is that the minimum guaranteed jackpot is raisen to €100 million and rolls over from draw to draw up to €190 million, until someone hits the main prize. However these big events attract many more players than usual and the jackpots use to be won in few draws. Indeed, the highest jackpot hit in a SuperDraw so far has been €130 million, in six different occasions.
